Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand

Six Kiwis are diagnosed with blood cancer everyday. LBC provides vital support & funds life-saving cancer research to help them get through.


Leukaemia is the most come cancer to affect children - but blood cancer can strike people at any age with more than 21,000 Kiwis living with blood cancer across the country.

Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) is dedicated to helping them get through.

Whether it’s providing financial help to struggling families, in-depth information on specific diseases, or visiting patients at home or in hospital, LBCs mission is to ensure every person affected by blood cancer has a place to turn for the crucial support they need.

We're also dedicated to funding cancer research so that one day all Kiwis will have access to cancer treatments that are so smart and targeted, that every patient will have the opportunity to defeat their cancer.

LBC’s essential patient services and life-saving cancer research are not funded by the Government but directly by you, and the thousands of other warm-hearted Kiwis like you, who choose to help. Thank you.

In light of COVID-19, the team here at LBC have been working round-the-clock to change the way we deliver essential services to ensure we can continue to support blood cancer patients and families safely.

Life-saving treatments like chemotherapy are continuing and we’re ramping up support for patients and families.

We’re increasing the help we give to the most vulnerable patients by keeping in close contact by phone, text and online.

We’re providing emergency financial support

to people who are really struggling with the basics like nutritious food, help with transport to treatments and parking costs at hospital.
